Carrot Ginger Soup with Avocado

As you’ve probably noticed I’m a little behind with my post this week.  That’s because I’ve spent pretty much the whole week on the couch and sick.  It has not been fun, let me tell you.  And when I am sick, the only thing I really have an appetite for and am able to eat is soup…which is exactly what I did.

Carrot Ginger Soup with Avocado

This carrot soup is so easy to make, which is perfect when you’re not feeling too hot.  The freshness of the lime and ginger and the coolness of the avocado was exactly what I needed to get me back on my feet.  I always double the recipe and freeze any leftovers so I’ve got them ready to go for the next sick day…

  1. I have tried carrot soup before and it was good, but definitely looking for another recipe. This one might be it – and love that the list of ingredients isn’t forever long.

    • Give it a try and let me know what you think. It’s been THE carrot soup in our household for quite some time now because it’s easy to make and still so tasty.
